gearing or... no?

Hey all,
Has anyone in CO made the switch to 4.56 gears for the steep grades/mountain passes? Looking into it to see if this will help out from constant shifting or if I should just see a diesel in my future.

What are something you guys noticed after installing the 4.56?

Although I'm not in Colorado - it is hands down THE BEST MOD I've made in over ten years of ownership of my '05. Wish now that I had done it on the way home from purchase at the stealership in 2005. Just did it last month (Truetrac with Motive 4:56's) .
It would have to make a huge positive difference in the Colorado mountains IMO .

coming from the guy with 2wd jk

Going to see if I have an LSD, I may already. Gotta jack it up and spin the tires in neutral to see. If I do that will be some cost savings right there.

And charged, thank you for all the help! And you to VA. Helping out the little newbie haha
